    • Train driver Nurlan is heading to Baku for the last time before retirement. On its way round the neighborhoods of the city his train snags a blue bra off a washing line. To escape from his lonely life Nurlan embarks to the most adventurous journey of his live: to find the owner of this perky piece of underwear. He rents a small room in Baku and begins his quest. With great passion, Nurlan knocks at every door along the train track. While he encounters different women who for their own reasons decide to let him into their private worlds, his ‘project’ is not left unnoticed by their husbands. But the more difficult it gets, the more creative and determined Nurlan becomes to convince every woman to try on the bra.

      The tragicomic story of THE BRA is told without dialogue through pictures alone by acclaimed German director Veit Helmer, known for festival hits such as Tuvalu (1999), Absurdistan (2008), Baikonur (2011) and recently Fiddlesticks (2014). His films altogether have received more than 180 awards.
